Just took this image a couple of hours ago with the Canon 5D and 100-400mm zoom. Jupiter is the brighter one at the top, Mercury the one on lower right. I think they will be at their closest in 3-days time.

Nice shot Greg, but interesting cross artefacts - not what I'd expect from a traditional refracting lens... are they natural, or added later?

They are from Noel Carboni's "Star Spikes Pro2" software :) They add sparkle (IMO) to what is otherwise a couple of bright points in the sky.
